Case Study: Costco Stevenage

Need a new site kitting out with the latest premium garage equipment? No problem - Hofmann Megaplan have you covered. The most recent install from our expert engineers was the complete fit out of new tyre shop for major brand Costco's latest opening in Stevenage.

Installation without the hassle!

High quality service of premium tyre fitting equipment is vital for big brand tyre shops as volume is high and machines need to be reliable.

Our specialist machines and install engineers were an obvious choice. 

Megaspin 820 Wheel Balancer

The megaspin 820P Wheel Balancer takes balancing to a whole new level - the One Weight Balance technology enables just one weight to completely balance a wheel.

The incredible ability to provide live recommended actions makes interacting with the machine easy for fitters. A colour TFT display & further user prompts provide a greater visual representation, increasing efficiency for swift balancing.

Our team successfully installed three of these incredible machines to accompany...

Twister Evolution Tyre Changer

The new branch also had three Twister Evo Tyre Changing machines to compliment these advanced balancers.

Designed based on feedback from tyre fitters, the Twister Evo depicts strength, reliability and ease of use; which suits Costco down to a tee for their ongoing services.

Lifting Costco in Stevenage!

Not only were the tyre-fitting machines installed efficiently, but we also supplied and installed two brand new 3.2 Tonne Two Post Lifts and one 4.0 Tonne Two Post Lift. Between these machines all lifting needs for the branch are covered!

By making great use of the available space, providing excellent solutions for the footprint of the garage and considering the operation requirements, our team took full advantage of offering high specification solutions for high volume requirements!

Does your garage need an alignment salesman?

Look no further than the Hofmann Megaplan TreadReader, capable of diagnosing misalignment and tyre wear condition in a way that informs customers and increases service sales.

This hand-held alignment technology provides an instant visual health check and promises to boost the sales of your alignment services.

James Boon, EVP of Garage Equipment on the TreadReader

"There is something about human nature that makes many of us naturally suspicious when someone tells you that you have to spend money! However, the TreadReader presents the customer with a very real appraisal of their tyres, in a color-coded and numbered format which is easy to understand, on a report that simply can't be argued with. It removes any doubt or apprehension in its entirety."

The unit itself is lightweight, robust (the company claims it has the same characteristics of the well-known brand hammer Drill) meaning it can withstand the volume use of a heavy-handed technician and requires just a few seconds to run over all 4 tyres for instant upload to a smartphone or tablet via the TreadReader App, which can then be converted into a hard printout or emailable document.

The TreadReader is the device taking the tyre and alignment industry by storm with its ability to inform customers in a clear and concise manner of the dangers their vehicle might be putting them in. The added bonus? A boost in business for garages that might otherwise have been missed out on. 

For more information on this innovative technology, take a look at the TreadReader on our website now.

Case Study: Kam Servicing

Megamount 603 tyre changer and Megaspin 420 wheel balancer installed recently at Kam Servicing in Heanor
A spot of ingenuity from our engineers at this recent install in Kam Servicing in Heanor.

There was a limited amount of space to work with, but we successfully managed to install a Megamount 603 tyre changer and a Megaspin 420 wheel balancer. The main concern was making sure they didn't get in the way of the doors or each other, and we managed to create the perfect fit. Both machines are able to operate seamlessly in tandem without disruption to the other. 

The above image shows how we were able to make the most of space we had for the install whilst minimising the tyre equipment's overall footprint in the workshop.
